      The new standard anthology of nineteenth and twentieth century philosophy.

      The Norton Anthology of Western Philosophy: After Kant provides a comprehensive introduction to the predominantly European (“Continental”) interpretive tradition of philosophy after Kant in one volume, and to the now predominantly Anglo-American analytic tradition in the other. It features the extensive editorial apparatus for which Norton Anthologies have been known and trusted by professors and students alike for more than 50 years. Ideal for courses at all levels in the history of philosophy after Kant, these volumes belong on every philosopher’s (and philosophy student’s) bookshelf.

      “If Conant and Elliott hadn’t done it, I would have thought it was impossible—an anthology that does full justice to the breadth and depth of analytic philosophy, and makes available the significant insights of the philosophers who have shaped the tradition and who loom large in determining its future. Conant and Elliott have, as well, provided the historical context for understanding the tradition, and informative and helpful headnotes illuminating the individual entries. All in all, this is a remarkable achievement, indispensable for beginners and useful for advanced students or anyone wanting to think about what analytic philosophy is and how it got to where it is now.” — Cora Diamond, University of Virginia
